    NOTE:  I am checking this pattern.  Please be patient till it is updated. I am very sorry for the issues.

    This crochet baby blanket is stunning, the extra thick yarn is fast to crochet with and makes it extra cozy and warm.  This makes the perfect handmade gift for almost anyone on your list!  If you like to crochet check out these crochet coasters and for the child on your list try this easy kids crochet cowl.

    Whip up one of these quick and cozy crochet baby blankets for the little ones this Christmas! Working with this chunky yarn makes it super fast, and you’ll want one for yourself once you notice how soft and warm it feels!

    The pattern is really easy once you get the hang of it, and I think the sweet shell stitch gives the blanket a little extra detail that I love. This is easy enough for beginners, so don’t shy away from this pattern if your new to crochet.


    I used 3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick…Wheat color. The hook size is J and the finished size is a 29″ square.

      I started to make this chunky crotchet baby blanket but I noticed that there is a note that you were checking the pattern. I do notice that the pattern does not look right. Is there any way I can get the corrected pattern? I would really appreciate any guidance you can give me. Thank you in advance for you help.

      Wondering if pattern works now or what are the problems? I ordered supplies shipped to island where I'm located to make several of these before I was aware there is issue. I want to get started so would like some help with the problem. Thanks

      Hello, if I wanted to make a bigger one for myself what would be the chain? Like in multiples of 3 plus 1? Thank you
